Hi my name is ***** ***** to JustAnswer. I will help you with your question today.

I can help you set up your mail account on your new iMac or migrate the account and old emails from a backup, whichever it is you need to do.

What form of backup do you have from the old computer? Is it in Time Machine, or something else? Please reply to let me know.

Thank you in advance,
